During January-February 1944, the battles at Anzio and Monte Cassino were some of the bloodiest of the entire Italian Campaign. The Allies were fighting to break through the lines at Monte Cassino, the town of Cassino and into the Liri Valley. At the same time, the Allies had landed on the beaches of Anzio further to the north. The Germans were applying pressure to push the Allies back into the sea. An example of the fighting at Anzio, the 2nd Ranger battalion launched a night attack with 768 men and only 6 returned. Also, on 22 January, the Allies launched their first operation to break the German line at Cassino. The attacks by the Americans and the British were not coordinated. The 36th "Texas" Infantry Division was assigned to cross the Rappido River and attack into the flat Liri Valley. This front was heavily mined and covered by German armor and artillery. Their attack was repulsed with heavy losses for the 36th Division. There were other battles that saw heavy combat but the amount of troops involved were not as numerous, so the loses were not as high. This includes: Battle of Monte Battiglia(or Battle Mountain) in Sept 1944 Battle of Ortona by Canadian Division - Dec 1943
the battle of Gettysburg
It was the Battle of Antietam.
The British won. But it was really close. It was the bloodest battle on Canadian Soil. The French soon surrendered and New France was passed into British Hands.
No. The casualties were quite light, compares with later battles, but they shocked the public all the same. The bloodiest battle was Gettysburg (3 days), and the bloodiest one-day battle was Antietam.
Gettysburg was the bloodiest battle in the American Civil War, with about 47,000 casulties. However it is not even close to being the bloodiest battle in history. There are many other historical battle with much higher casualty rates.The bloodiest battle in History was the Battle of Stalingrad in World War II with about 2 Million casualties in total.

The Battle of Keren between Italy and Britain was in 1941.
A tough question but a fair one in my veiw I think it was the battle of the somme where the British out numbered the Germans seven to one but lost most of the army in a vicious, bloody brawl.

Antietam (Sharpsburg) - September 17th 1862
There was not an actual battle of Italy. There was the famous battle of Sicily which took place all through out the island. The battle of Sicily played a major role in the decision to overthrow Mussolini and begin negotiations to surrender. Of course, the Germans continued to fight for every mile of territory. The Battle of Cassino was the battle that was the most costly and lasted the longest.
